Dimensions of Work and Employment

Debbie Laliberte Rudman from Western’s School of Occupational Therapy (and member of the CRHESI executive team) will be speaking at the City Symposium on September 16 (this Monday) at Aeolian Hall.

The title of her presentation is Reimagining Problem and Solution Frames: Beyond the Individualization of Unemployment. This is one of four public talks exploring the theme of work and employment in London and the region from various perspectives.

Susana Caxaj from the Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing will also present at the symposium. In this short video, she discusses her recent paper, “I Will Not Leave My Body Here”: Migrant Farmworkers’ Health and Safety Amidst a Climate of Coercion (published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health)

Susana will present a talk titled Access Without or Despite Fear? Border Walls in the Lives of Temporary Migrants at Monday’s event.

Debbie and Susana will present alongside Carol Stewart (Employment Sector Council) and Clark Bryan (Aeolian Hall). Special live music by Caroline Blumer and Hevaldo Souza. The City Symposium is an 8-part series that brings together an artist, a researcher, a civil servant, and an activist, to discuss a theme from unique perspectives.
